For over ten years,
Chris Jones and her husband have grown
Sauvignon Blanc and Sangiovese grapes
at their ranch in Los Olivos, California.

A third–generation Central Coast native, Jones was originally inspired
to write a simple "how to grow grapes" book for wine lovers.
Intuition led in a different direction, however,
and ONE VINTAGE evolved into a contemplative work,
in which the annual rhythm of the vineyard
may be seen as a metaphor for life’s circularity.

As a teacher of the Japanese art of flower arranging
in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana,
Jones believes that working with nature
releases the latent creativity in all of us.
The rich beauty of her vineyard was the
catalyst for the creation of ONE VINTAGE.
